A Window Cleaner You Can Drink

by Dre Grigoropol


We bet you didn’t know that while tea is cleansing for the body, it can also serve as a cleaning product for your home. Black tea has tannic acid in it, which dissolves dirt and grease–so it functions as an environmentally safe and super-cheap window cleaner. Avoid those poisonous chemicals, and get your streaky windows looking sparkly with a cleaner that’s safe enough to drink. This recipe, from networx.com, is so simple, you can make today after work.

Black Tea Window Cleaner Recipe:

  • Brew strong black tea: a recommended recipe is three black tea bags in 8 ounces of water.
  • Allow the steeped tea to cool off for a least an hour.
  • Pour tea into a spray bottle, or dip a cloth into the solution.
  • Use the wet cloth to wipe off smears on windows.
